Read John 18:33-37

John 18:33–38 (GNB): 33 Pilate went back into the palace and called Jesus. “Are you the King of the Jews?” he asked him.
34 Jesus answered, “Does this question come from you or have others told you about me?”
35 Pilate replied, “Do you think I am a Jew? It was your own people and the chief priests who handed you over to me. What have you done?”
36 Jesus said, “My kingdom does not belong to this world; if my kingdom belonged to this world, my followers would fight to keep me from being handed over to the Jewish authorities. No, my kingdom does not belong here!”
37 So Pilate asked him, “Are you a king, then?”
Jesus answered, “You say that I am a king. I was born and came into the world for this one purpose, to speak about the truth. Whoever belongs to the truth listens to me.”


It turns out that as Pilate puts Jesus on trial - the truth is; he is the one on trial.


Humble me O Lord to be judged and justified by you my King.
